      Description

      Metadata writeback cache is a highly desirable feature that should allow Lustre to overcome link latency for modifying metadata operations esp. noticeable in interactive type of workloads.

      Examples include upacking large archives and building software on a single node with no contention from any other nodes.

      Another highly visible set of usecases would include "File/directory-per-process" kind of benchmarks like say mdtest.
